Team Backpacks

Help me give my students and athletes backpacks so they have a way to pack their school materials and athletic gear around.

My Students

The school I teach & coach at is in a small town on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana. We are a part of a great community with students who want to get the most from their time at our school.

Our school is on a 100% free and reduced lunch program, and some of our students have trouble getting simple school & athletic supplies.

Most of our students go through a lot in their lives, and I want to do my part to help make their lives a little easier.

My Project

This is not specifically an educational project, but more of a student needs project. These team backpacks will help our students keep track of their day-to-day materials. Not only will these packs be used for student athletes to store their track equipment, but some of the students I have in track & field do not even have backpacks to hold their school materials. I see them come to practice with ripped plastic bags full of books, shoes, and homework. These backpacks will help the students keep their stuff organized, and prevent them from being damaged.

It might seem like a small item to most, but to our kids it would mean a lot.

Thank you for your support!
